Chief of Police McMahon on
Saturday last detained a man named
Arthur F. Gibson who had every
description but one item, answering
to a Dr. A. Arthur, jr., who is want
ed in Indiana to answer to a very
serious crinib. He was permitted to
go, after it was ascertained that the
man wanted was marked as de
scribed. Calmar McCune, editor of the
Osceola Jtecord, and Lawyer Cald
well, of New York, tarried Tuesday
night of last week in the city and
gave the Journal a very happy
visit. They were on a few days'
jaunt in the uortheru part of the
state, where Mc. has landed inter
ests. They passed through the city
Sunday on their return.
A. L. Richardson, representing
A. Vogeler & Co. of Baltimore, Md.,
the proprietors of St. Jacobs Oil,
was in the city Monday. We notice
him to say that he is the man who
writes those reading-matter adver
tisements which have attracted, de
ceived, amused and interested the
most of you, and he is a bright one.
Of course he is an old newspaper
manager.
Hon. Chas. A. Speice of this
city, and Hon. D. II. Wheeler of
Plattsmouth are representatives of
the Nebraska order, I. O. O. F., to
the Sovereigu Grand Lodge, which
meets at Cincinnati this week. Mr.
Speice started Friday moruing, ac
companied by his daughter, Miss
Freddie. They will, before their
return, visit Mr. Speice's old home
in Pennsylvania.
J. C. McBride has sold his in
terest in the Nebraska Fanner to
his partner, O. M. Druse, who be
comes sole publisher. Mr. Druse is
an able young man, and the number
of the Farmer before us shows that
he appreciates the needs of agricul
turists iii Nebraska. The Farmer a
a semi-monthly publication and will
be furnished with the Journal, both
prepaid,. for $3.00 a year.
It is not necessary to suggest to
Columbus business men that they
exercise their usual whole-hearted-ness
in dealing with those who will
be in attendance upon the Platte Co.
Fair.. Nothing is so gratifying to
strangers on such occasious as to
feel that they are being dealt with
as brothers, fairly and honestly. A
little experience of the other kind is
enough to bring this home to a man.
Thomas Swire who has been
working ou the steel gang on the U.
P. road, was run over yesterday by
three haud cars, having the flesh of
his back considerably bruised and
lacerated. m He was sitting on the
front end of the foremost car when
the others bumped against it, throw
ing him off. It was a wonder he
was not killed. Neither of the
"oosses" so we are told, stopped to
care for him.
A very good sample of Egyp
tian or Rice corn has been left us by
W. N. McCandlish. We shall take
occasion shortly to publish an arti
cle on this product, setting forth its
merits. It is claimed that the seed
is good for animals and also for
making flour, and the stalks a good
fuel, growing aa thick as a man's
coat sleeve. The specimens we have
6een, however, are nardly so large
as our common corn.
The Omaha Telegram is author
ity for saying that Hon. W. A. Pax
ton has bought the Laing Bros,
cattle ranches near North Platte,
Barton & Dillon's beeves and other
small lots. Mr. Paxton has offered
Barton & Dillon $250,000 forall their
stock and rancbe property in Lincoln
and adjoining counties. The Jour
nal mentions these things to show
to its readers in the eaBt the extent
of some of our dealings in Nebraska.
A s we go to press we hear of the
fact that during Fair week there will
be issued a five column daily paper
called the Columbus Daily JYeirs.
Fred. A. Coan aud John Myers, two
practical printers of our city, are the
editors and publishers, and we wish
them success. Our business men
should encourage them, as best they
can for it will undoubtedly be a
great acquisition to the life of the
week. The circulation of the Daily
JTews will be 1,500 copies. wl
We are told that there are some
saloon keepers in the city who are
selling and have sold intoxicating
liquors to minors. If these men
have no respect for themselves they
ought to respect the laws of the land
in which they live. If not, some
father 'or mother may, one of these
days, have their license revoked, and
thus they will find that under a
license of $500, it won't pay to sell
contrary to law. Obey the law
while it is a law. If you don't like
it seek to have it repealed, but you
will never make friends, nor money
either, by selling liquor to minors
or habitual drunkards.
Fire.
Just as most of our citizens were
sitting down to dinner yesterday the
fire-bell warned them to drop the
knife and fork and hurry to the
rescue. As the bell continued to
ring, those who were inclined to
wait for lurther advice hurried to
wards the smoke. Following the
direction whither all feet pointed, it
was soon ascertained that the Pacific
House, situated on the east side of
Olive St., on the corner of Olive and
Pacific Avenue, on the south side of
the U. P. track, was the buildiug on
fire.
The Engine and the Hook aud
Ladder companies were promptly
on the ground, and, assisted by citi
zens and quite a number of farmers
who happened to be in town, all of
whom worked vigorously, the fire
was soon under control, and by one
o'clock there was no further danger.
The wind was high during the
fire, and had it got under headway a
wide path would have been made
through the very heart of the city,
endangering at least a hundred
thousand dollars worth of property.
The Pacific House will be remem
bered by the older citizens as the
American House, formerly stand
ing on 7th street. Now owned by
Geo. Lehman, he had it removed,
enlarged and most of it veneered
with brick. The roof, where it
seems the fire originated, was, all
but the shingles, composed of cot
touwood, and burned slowly.
The building was occupied by
Joshua Norton, Jr., as a hotel ; we
believe that the furniture, which was
his, was mostly saved we heard of
nothing being burned. It is diffi
cult uow to tell what loss the build
ing has sustained, but it will be not
far from S1.000.
The fire department again de
serve the hearty thanks of the city
for their prompt and very effective
services.
The ItuptlNt Church.
Baptism. The ordinance of bap
tism, postponed a few weeks ago,
will be administered Sunday, Sept.
25th, immediately after the morning
service, in the Loup river. There
will be preaching ou that day, and
once in two weeks thereafter, in the
German Reformed house of worship,
by Franklin Pierce, pastor of the
Baptist church.
Mr. Editor: There is a Baptist
church in Columbus. As many peo
ple in town seem to be ignorant of
the fact, I wish to make it emphatic.
The church was orgauized in the
spring of 1S80, and already shows
signs of vigorous life. It is not a
Seventh Day Baptist, nor a Free
Will Baptist, nor yet an Anti-Mis
sion Baptist church, but, a regular.re
stricted communion Baptist church,
and has a great, rapidly-increasing
denomination behind it, which al
ready numbers more thnu 2,000,000
in North America. This mighty
hoet is a unit on this one point, to
wit : We hold the Bible, the whole
Bible, as the sole rule of faith and
practice. Iu interpreting the Bible,
we welcome light from every quar
ter. The highest scholarahip is
brought to bear upon its deep, spir
itual truths. Due deference is paid
to the opinions of learned divines of
all ages and denominations. We
receive aid in its study from the
best thoughts of New England Rad
icals, and German Rationalists.
Firmly holding that the Word of
God is still in advance of the most
advanced age, we hold fast by the
doctrines once delivered to the saints,
and believe them to be the only bul
warks of hope aud faith. I ask you
to print the above that all may know
that we are, what we are, and why
we are. Franklin Pierce.
Republican Co. Convention.
The Republican electors of Platte
county, Neb., are hereby called to
send delegates from the several pre
cincts to meet in county convention
at the Court House in Columbus, on
Saturday, Sept. 24th, 1881, at 2 p. m.
for the purpose of nominating a
county ticket, and selecting dele
gates to the State Convention, aud
for the transaction of any other bus
iness that may properly come before
the convention.
The several precincts are entitled

Sometimes (judging from the
number of questious asked), it would
seem that the whole duty of officials
at a railroad station was to answer
queries, and at times it would ap
pear (from the number unanswered
by them), that that delightful work
formed no appreciable portion of
their duties. We have often stood
by, listened and pitied, but it has
struck us very forcibly that a bulle
tin board containing a few facts,
would save the necessity of asking
or answering hundreds of questions
important for travelers to know.
Schuyler.
From the Sun of Sept. 15th.
Our market quotations to-day are
wheat, new and old $1; corn, 47c;
oats, 35; hog, $5.75; butter, 12 to
15c ; eggs, 15c.
There are predictions that potatoes
at next planting time here will be
worth $2 a bushel. If such shall be
the case, our dealers had better store
than ship potatoes now at 50 cents.
Mr. and Mrs. Cameron and Mrs.
Dr. "Williams and family left Mon
day for the east the former to visit
relatives iu Ohio, aud the latter des
tined for Washington, their present
home.
Elder Cudney was going about on
crutches Friday and Saturday last,
occasioned by a bruised ankle which
had been jammed by a horse, one
evening of an appointment in the
country.
The wrong mail sack was dumped
off at Schuyler on the arrival of the
express from the west Sunday.
When opened the contents seemed
all to be consigned to parties in
California.
The man Dawson who stabbed a
Bohemian a half dozen or more
times in a 6aloon at North Bend last
week, was acquitted at the prelimi
nary hearing, on the ground of
"self-defense."
Among the names of the victims
to the late Indian massacre in Ari
zona is that of "George Turner." As
George Turner from this locality is
understood to be in that country, it
is possible that he may be one of the
victims but we hope not.
Some of the Schuyler veteraus
called on M. A. Upton at the asylum
while in Lincoln attending the re
union. He recognized his old ac
quaintances, appeared contented and
cheerful, and for some time has been
enjoying good health. He is im
pressed with the notion that he is
one of the physicians of the insti
tution.
There was a Bohemian dance Sun
day at the Catholic Church near
Olean. and in the course of the fes
tivities there arose an ugly,fight, iu
which several heads received vari
ous ghastly cuts from a hatchet and
revolver in the hands of Frank
Jonas and his brother. Anton
Feiala, one of the. victims, was in
town Monday, seeking medical
dressing for his bandaged wounds
and legal redress for his damaged
head.
The Cadiz (O.) Sentinel, which
used to give the Judge some politi
cal broadsides, has, nevertheless, this
to say of him on his visit to hia
old home:
"Hon. Allen C. Turner, for many
years a citizen of Cadiz, and for
twelve years Probate Judge for Har
rison county, but who has resided
for the past ten years at Columbus,
Nebraska, is iu Cadiz, visiting his
friends, of whom he has a host. The
added years have whitened the locks
of our venerable friend, but he is
the same genial, intelligent, kind
hearted gentleman he was when he
left us for his western home. No
man could come to Cadiz who would
receive a warmer welcome than that
accorded to Judge Turner."
The Republican of the same place,
after paying a very high compliment
to the Journal, with which the
Judge has been identified, says :
"Judge Turner appears to-day the
same straight-forward, steady-going,
plain-spoken lawyer that he was ten
years ago. He does not look a day
older. His voice, manner and ap
pearance are just the same. Let him
go into the Probate Judge's oflice,
there are many who would come iu
and imagine he had been there all
the time. He would give a decision
so exactly like he did ten years ago
that nobody could tell the differ
ence."
The Judge being 72 years of age,
this kind of talk will doubtless be
gratifying to him. His many friends
among our readers will be pleased
to learn that he is enjoying his visit.
Coluiubu Primary.
The primary was conducted here
as has been customary with the Re
publicans for a number of years
past, voting the same as at an ordi
nary election of course by recog
nized Republicans only, or such as
declare themselves such. There
were two tickets in the field Satur
day, resulting iu the selection of the
following as delegates to the county
convention next Saturday: Hugh
Hughes, M. H. White, M. K. Tur
ner, John Tannahill, W. H. Winter
botham, John Hammond, Wm. Cor
nelius, M. Whitmoyer, G. W. Hulst,
C. M. Chambers, Julius Rasmussen,
Gus. G. Becher.
While discussing the benefits iu
working corn to plow deep, a friend,
the other day gave an instance in
point: Daniel Ritz, living within
twelve miles of Lincoln, while cul
tivating, found that he was not
going deep enough to suit his idea
of corn farming, aud so he put on an
extra team of horses and pushed the
shovels down. The consequence is
that he has no nubbins in his field,
the ears are all about a foot in
length, and plenty of them, while
corn in the same vicinity, with no
apparent difference iu the conditions
of its treatment except the working,
shows a far less satisfactory result.
